I have a friend whose little girl contracted MRSA from her friend's child who apparently has spread it to at least 3 other children. My friend's little girl is only about 19 months old and she developed an nasty, painful sore, high fevers, and stopped eating or drinking. So my friend and her husband rushed her to the hospital. They admitted the baby (her name is Rachel) and this morning they performed surgery, I assume to remove the sore and surrounding tissue. I was gone most of today and missed getting all the updates. Rachel is still refusing to eat or drink. The doctors are trying to figure out what the next step is. Tomorrow my friend is contacting her local health department and the CDC. She wants the woman who is KNOWINGLY allowing her child to spread this disease to be forced to give her child the antibiotics necessary to eliminate it from his system. My friend is also 8 months pregnant and is having a terribly difficult pregnancy. She is in the hospital more days than she is at home due to problems with contractions, swelling, high blood pressure that is causing blackouts, and lack of fetal movement. She has a scheduled C-section later in June. She and her husband are under a lot of stress and her husband had to take their oldest child home to sleep as he has school tomorrow (he's 4). I am asking, please, please, PLEASE, add this family in your prayers. I am so worried about Rachel. I've been worried about my friend for weeks now. She has had major complications since very early on with this pregnancy. The baby she is pregnant with is a boy, and his name will be Christian Anthony Ray. Please keep this family in your prayers. I'll update as soon as I hear something.
